Be happy, irregardless,as suggested by the organizer and agreed upon by the lucky eight attendees, will be Cebu TB's motto, as we promised to promote travbuddyhood not only to TB members but to non-members as well. To affirm the motto, everybody says, "Aja! Aja!" (Go! Go! in Korean)
Eight is my lucky number on TB. My first official TB meet-up event in Manila composed of eight(including myself) TBs and again, my first meet-up in Cebu on July 5, was also composed of eight lovely people. The meet-up place was at CASA VERDE, where we had dinner enjoying Cebu's best baby back ribs.
We didn't wanna spend the whole night talking about travel so we hopped on to the next meet-up venue at Mango Square.
We all packed ourselves into my vintage ,worn-out, but still engine-sturdy '98 Honda City sedan road trip buddy and drove off to the seaside town of Liloan, north of Cebu. Liloan is where you find one of the best known landmarks in Cebu, the lighthouse at Bagacay Point. We drove for about 45 minutes through the dark, unlit northern provincial road. We continued to sing along to MP3ipod music as we drove past the unlit, dark road going up to the lighthouse.
I parked the car and as soon as we got out, all of us were looking up, awe-struck with the hypnotic magical sight of the giant lighthouse rays that were moving up above us in a soft, slow, circular motion. And we were the only earthlings present in the vicinity at that moment, standing under the huge umbrella of lights. I felt like I was in the twilight zone, or some X-files territory. We chilled for a moment, then we found a spot at the stairs at the entrance doorway of the lighthouse where we sat and continued our countless travel stories covering the mystical island of Siquijor, Camiguin,Surigao, Agusan,Negros, Laos, Java, Borneo, Palau, France,Russia, New York, Vietnam, etc.
Wow, another experience that I never expected to turn out that amazing. I thought it will be just a simple TB meet-up dinner with my old TB friend Racky and the newbies, but it turned to be a memorable TB meet-up. Aja aja, Cebu TBs! Be happy, irregardless! Ayo-ayo mo tanan! (All be good!)
